Memories Timeline


  1. Martha & family, I am so sorry for your loss. Having just lost my husband I know there are no words to ease your pain. My God be with all the family.

  2. Martha, so sorry about Richard. As you know we grew up together next door to each other and played together practically every day. Fond memories of playing “cars and trucks” in “Miss Sara’s” backyard. She would let us build roads and little lakes. Riding bicycles in the woods and smoking “rabbit tobacco” were another favorite pastime. This certainly leaves a void for me as I know it does for you and the family.

  3. From Martha’s Gail: May God be with you and your family in the coming days ahead. We have another angel watching over us in heaven. He was a great friend, Father, Husband, Brother. He will be missed by all. He was quiet but when he said something you always listen. He loved his wife so much. He told me many times in his way the little things that mean a lot. Love to you all,
    Gail W

  4. I am sorry to learn of Richard”s death. My father was Osborne Hutchins and he often spoke of Richard. I believe they both worked for the phone company. I am out of town and cannot attend any services and my mother, Barbara Hutchins, is not able to attend . Therefore, I am grateful for this method of expressing our sympathy for your loss.

  5. I am so sorry to hear of your lose. My Dad was Osborne Hutchins. The entire Attaway family was so dear to his heart. He told us many stories of his youth and his adventures with the Attaway family. Many Blessings. Elizabeth Hutchins Nichols

  6. Death is never easy. When Lazarus died, Jesus “groaned in the spirit and became troubled,” and shortly afterward he “gave way to tears.” (John 11:33, 35) So, when someone we love dies, it does not show weakness to cry. God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. (Revelation 21:4).May the God of love comfort the Attaway family and friends.

  7. Martha, so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Having lost my Bob a little less than two years ago, I think you and I were blessed to have so many years with our husbands though it is never enough. May you feel the comfort of God’s love especially during this time.

    Elizabeth Wing

  8. Dear Attaway family:

    I wish to convey my sincerest condolences to your entire family. Losing a loved one in death is one is one of the hardest things that anyone will ever have to deal with. There is a great hope held out to us for the future because God promises to bring those we lost back to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. I hope this brief message will bring you a measure of comfort in this difficult time.
